Looking for Charts

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I have been using the website,http://www.naco.faa.gov/index.asp?xml=naco/online/d_tpp , to download SIDS, STARS, and ILS approach plates. This is a free site and has come in handy when I plan my routes. However, I need to find a site where I can get the same information for airports not in the US. I know that Jeppesen has payware simcharts, but I would like to see if anyone has any links to other sites like the one I listed above where I can find this stuff for free or at a discount? Thanks in advance.Sean

Thanks Gary and Lee for the links. I checked them out. I was surprised that they all weren't in the same format as the US ones. I had never seen foreign charts before and for some reason I thought they would look just like the US charts. Thanks again.

I think the difference is because many non-US authorities are now following ICAO standards for their charts. There are still difference but not a great as with US charts.

Google will be your best friend... if you know how to ask "him". But I prefer to enter to the VATSIM/IVAO division of the country i'm searching charts for. For Colombia, I recommend www.colatc.org (the Colombian Vatsim division), for the US, someone already said to enter Vatsim-USA.Hope this helpsBest regards from ColombiaLuis Miguel

I know a website that has "Sectionals" for North America (mainly the US). Does anybody know whether such a thing is available for Europe. ?Thanks Barry

Barry, have a look at : http://www.aeroplanner.com/index.cfmI bought a subscription for 'sim charts', and use them (downloaded and viewed with a second computer with a free chart image program available on the site), but they are WAC charts, not true sectionals. Some are very hard to read as well. But worth the 'peek' perhaps....you can view them on-line before purchasing a subscription, or buying them per chart.You can also buy a 'more advanced' subscription, which will allow you to download higher resolution charts, but I didn't bite on that.
